And it was mostly covered up by Apollo 11.

On July 26th Mary Jo Kopechne would have turned 65 years old.

Had Mary Jo survived, she would have been comforted by the Senator's efforts to preserve Social security...

Who am I kidding?

Had she survived, Mary Jo would probably have told the story of that night, revealing details that would have caused the instant disintegration of the Senator's career, and, perhaps, of the entire Kennedy image.

There is no evidence that this eventuality was on the Senator's mind as he swam, and then ran, away from the sunken car and it's still-living occupant. There is no evidence that an awareness of this probable chain of events had anything to do with his not reporting the accident to law enforcement or rescue personnel until the following morning.

Not yet! I was at the teeny-weeny Green Zone PX a couple of days ago, but just saw the regular Iraqi staff ringing things up and a couple of fairly young AAFES employees.

There's only one other PX I can get to and it's a pretty big one. However, I have to go to that one via heavily armored convoy. Next time I go to that one, I'll look around - heck, I'll ask around.

And what should have been observed as the thirtieth anniversary of Chappaquiddick in 1999 was _completely_ covered up by the deaths of John Jr, his wife and others. The timing, as with Apollo 11, was utterly uncanny.

L. Brent Bozell III :

But for intense idiocy, it doesn't get any better than Charles Pierce, who won the "Quote of the Year" [2003] hands down with this achingly perverse Chappaquiddick sentence in the Boston Globe Magazine: "If she had lived, Mary Jo Kopechne would be 62 years old. Through his tireless work as a legislator, Edward Kennedy would have brought comfort to her in her old age." Please go away, Mr. Pierce. Kennedy couldn't even bring her a life jacket.

It is some sort of justice, to know that countless would see this title alone, and know it was about Ted Kennedy.

Somebody made a very good point here a couple of weeks ago during the Gitmo fiasco:

More people died at the Chappaquidick bridge than have died at Gitmo

I never thought about Mary Jo's birthday, but I have sent anniversary "cards" for July 19th to both of Teddy's offices - DC and Boston. Since it was SO important for him to remember the anniversary of Abu Ghraib, I thought it only fitting that he be reminded of another anniversary. I plan on making this an annual "event" for me.

I hate that she died, but let's be honest here, Mary Jo Kopechne was the Monica Lewinsky of her day, just another Washington party girl. The reason her family never pursued legal action against Teddy-boy is because they knew her sleazy life would have been published for all the world to see. It was better for them to let her die as a victim than for her fagile reputation to be dragged throught the muck a trial would have brought forth.

quote Had Mary Jo survived, she would have been comforted by the Senator's efforts to preserve Social security... /quote

No, had Mary Jo survived, ole Teddy would have been a shoe-in for Prez. The MSM would have spun the accident and his saving of the girl to turn him into the hero of the hour. The sex party they had been to would have been called a conference or meeting of some kind and Teddy, Mary Jo's savior, would have ridden the notoriety right into the oval office. Good thing for us that he didn't have any more sense then than he does now, and only thought about his own survival. If he had had any smarts at all, he would have known that if he had rescued her, he could have sold himself to the American public as her "knight in shining armor". Instead, old me-first is a stinkin' footnote in presidential history, and I for one am glad of it.

ODE TO MARY JO (With apologies to Bobby Gentry)

It was Seventeen July, Another sleepy, humid Hyannis day,

I was out shuckin' clams And my brother was slicin’ brie,

And at supper time we stopped and walked back to the compound to dine

And Rose hollered at the back door, "You savages remember to act refined."

Then she said, "I got some news this morning from Cambridge

Today Mary Jo and Teddy went off the Chappaquiddick Bridge ."

Joe said to Rose, as he passed around the Roquefort cheese

"Well, Teddy never had an ounce of sense, pass the lobster please

There's five more states in the lower forty-eight I got to screw."

And Rose said it was a shame about Mary Jo, she knew

Seems like no good news ever comes out of Cambridge

And now Teddy and Mary Jo went off the Chappaquiddick Bridge.

Brother said he remembered when he and Jack and Teddy K

Wrecked a yacht on a cove on Cape Cod Bay

And wasn't I talking to him after Mass last Sunday night

I'll have another couple escargot, you know, it don't seem right

I saw her at the gin mill yesterday in Falmouth with some kids

And now you tell me Mary Jo and Teddy went off the Chappaquiddick Bridge.

Mama said to me, "Child, what's happened to your appetite?

Bridget’s cooked all morning and you haven't touched a single bite

That nice Police Chief Arena dropped by today

Said he'd be pleased to have dinner on Sunday, Oh, by the way

He said he saw a girl that looked like you on the OnTime-Two at nine

And she and Teddy K. were throwing something into Pocha Pond"

A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Mary Jo

Brother married Vicky Gifford, they bought a place in Truro

There was a virus going 'round, Joe caught it and died last spring

And now Rose doesn't seem to want to do much of anything

And me I spend a lot of time snorting coke up in Cambridge

And dropping tabs over on the Chappaquiddick Bridge.

Classic case of liberal "do as I say, not as I do". And millions are willing to go along with (i.e., vote for) it because the ends justify the means.

Here's an interesting observation I read on another forum. Had Ted Kennedy's older brother survived WWII, he and JFK would both have probably had a good chance at the presidency, bringing to fruition Joe Sr's desire for a political dynasty, and Teddy would just have been another drunk, rich, womanizing fat old bastard.

I've heard that too. In fact, Joe Jr. was Sr.'s first pick to lead a politcal dynasty, but he died leaving the burden to fall on JFK and RFK. Teddy, it seems was always seen as a ne'er do well, even by Joe Sr.

But not by the morons who live in Ma and vote repeatedly for this pompous hypocritical SOS. Who you get in an election is truly representative of the majority of the voters.
